BEIRUT (AP) — A Syrian government official says a car bomb in a Damascus suburb has killed 10 people.

The official said the blast on Monday in Jaramana also wounded 41 people and caused heavy damage. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

The U.N. tried to broker a cease-fire over the four-day Eid al-Adha Muslim holiday, which ends on Monday. But the truce collapsed almost immediately after it was supposed to take effect.
